The 2016 NHL All-Star Game will take place in Nashville on Jan. 31. Instead of a traditional game, NHL standouts will compete in a 3-on-3 tournament, with each of the league’s divisions fielding a team. The roster for each division’s team includes six forwards, three defensemen and two goaltenders.

Bergeron, who won the Selke Trophy as the NHL’s top defensive forward in the past two seasons, has 15 goals (tied for first on the team) and 22 assists (tied for first on the team) for 37 points (first on the team) in his first 38 games of the 2015-2016 season.
